The situation: I have a single-course, 35” eight-string tuned F#-F in fourths and the strings feel quite heavy. It’s got a .175 anchor cable on the low F#, a regular six-string medium set for the B-C and then a wound .22 for the high F. All rounds and I’d be looking to keep them that way. I play quite a lot of tapping/touchstyle-y stuff with quite a few high register chords and the current set is too much. It’s quite fatiguing and I’m missing the resonant snappiness especially off the top ones when they’re tapped. I was considering guitar strings but not sure what effect this might have (fret buzz, weak tone, harder to play). I’d also like to keep a relatively even tension across the set, rather than having a ‘skinny top heavy bottom’ set. So, has anyone put fairly light strings on a bass before, and how did it work out? Also, any recommendations for string gauges, in terms of tension on a 35” and also that will be long enough to fit? Hoping that the TalkBass hive mind can give me a few pointers. I’ll have to order them individually online and I’m in the UK, if that makes a difference.
